Macleay Regis, Potts Point penthouse for sale for third time

The penthouse in the Macleay Regis in the 1939 Potts Point apartment block has been listed for October 6 auction. 

The listing follows the death in April of esteemed gynaecologist Professor Malcolm Coppleson. It has been spruced up in recent weeks, but still reflects the decor preferences of his late wife, Patricia, who was Vogue’s editor-at-large.

The dashing couple had come across the apartment after I wrote it up as being passed in at its 1989 auction when offered by the executors of the apartment’s second owner, the pioneering radio presenter Grace Gibson. She had lived there for almost four decades.

The original occupant was the Woolworths co-founder, Percy Christmas, who had undertaken the construction of the nine-floor apartment complex, just before the onset of World War 11.

The penthouse has been listed by Di Jones agents Jane Schumann and Gary Sands, on behalf of the Coppleson siblings, Richard, Victoria and Mark.

Some $6 million is being mooted as initial price guidance for the 250 sqm apartment with 90 sqm across two balconies.
